About Tidal Wave: Tidal Wave speaks to the interconnectedness that explores an aesthetic of abstract art. The use of ‘we’ in Tidal Wave fortifies the merge of collective voices, akin to the community that harvest a forgotten borough. The writing in Tidal Wave wrestles with language reimagined through placement of rhythmic science.
